The BBC is reporting that 21-year-old Frenchman Jean-Eric Vergne is slated to drive the Toro Rosso on Friday mornings once his Renault World Series campaign finishes in October.

The current cream of the Red Bull programme, Daniel Ricciardo, has been slotted in at HRT for the second half of the 2011 season and hotly tipped to replace either Jaime Alguersuari or Sebastien Buemi in 2012.

Toro Rosso's 2012 lineup will apparently then feel the pressure from Vergne, who currently runs second in the Renault World Series between leader Robert Wickens and Ricciardo.
